Sports Shots was started six years ago today!

In this time the website has grown dramatically, plus raised a lot of money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Vasculitis UK. Both was totally unexpected when we started it.

Since the 29th January 2011, Sports Shots has had over 12.3 million hits and raised £5,478.74 for charity.

We would like to thank everybody who;
follows us!
contributes to the website!
holds fundraisers for us!
donates at our charity fundraising events!
sponsor us!

 

There are too many people to mention over the six years but we could not run the website without those people who give their time.

We have met some wonderful people in this time and look forward to our seventh year of being the voice of local sport!

Thank you!

Andy & Lorna

Sports Shots is five years old today!

Sports Shots celebrates our fifth anniversary today!

The website is growing bigger each year with January 2016 seeing us being on the verge of breaking our monthly hits record! We are currently averaging over 8.8k hits per day with an amazing 24k visitors on Wednesday! This month alone has seen us register hits in 102 different countries!

Fiveyearsold

The past year has seen Darren Stanger join us as a columnist and we are lucky to have him.

We will not name everybody who has helped the website grow into the success it has become as we would hate to miss anyone! But we could not do it without people’s support.

We did not think when we published our first page back in 2011 that five years down the line we would have had over 8.3 million hits!

Thank you for your ongoing support, we look forward to trying to break records in the future!

Darren said:

For the second year in a row I am participating in the Milton Keynes Festival of Running Half Marathon on behalf of Macmillan. I aim to beat my personal best time of 2 hours and 1 minute.

Most of us are affected by cancer at some time during our lives whether it is a family member, a friend or a colleague at work. My Dad was diagnosed with cancer just under three years ago but was given the all clear. The support from the Macmillan nurses was superb and play a very important part.
